Federal Germans (German: Bundesdeutsche) as a noun or Federal German (bundesdeutsch) as an adjective are terms to describe the citizens of the Federal Republic of Germany (also Federal citizens - Bundesbürger), until the reunification in 1990 in contrast to the citizens of the German Democratic Republic and East Berlin (Bürger der Deutschen Demokratischen Republik) or the Sarrois, the citizens of the Saar Protectorate.

The term can also be used to differentiate to other German speaking nationals (e. g. Austrians, Belgians or Swiss Germans). It's important to recognize that "Bundesbürger" is not exclusive to ethnic Germans, it means anyone who has Federal German citizenship.
